Police are looking for a man who shot and killed a 24-year-old hairdresser in a robbery attempt at a Salt Lake City hair salon on August 15th, 2007. Stories published by both the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret Morning News. Broadcast media reports from August 15th on KSL Channel 5, KTVX Channel 4, and KUTV Channel 2, all in Salt Lake (police sketch at left from Deseret News).
The woman, identified as Faviola Hernandez by a relative, was killed about 4:40 p.m. when a man entered the Bushwhacker Hair & Tanning salon, at 1329 W. California Ave., and shot her with a silver handgun, according to police. Hernandez was the owner of the salon, and was spoken of highly by relatives and friends alike. Officers did not specify where or how many times the woman was shot. It is common for police not to publicly release certain details about crimes in order to help them narrow down lists of suspects more effectively.
Police issued a good description of the gunman. He is described as a male Hispanic in his early twenties, 5' 8" tall, 220 lbs, with a shaved head. He was last seen wearing a baggy white T-shirt, blue Levi shorts and white tennis shoes, and carrying a silver handgun. He was also described as having a tattoo on the inside of his right arm that extends from his wrist to his elbow. The tattoo is dark blue or purple in color, with flames and possibly a face or an animal depicted. Witnesses saw a vehicle leaving the scene of this incident that may have been involved. It is described as a green compact passenger car, possibly a Honda.
This murder was the eighth this month, making August the deadliest month in Utah so far this year.
Anyone who recognizes this suspect is asked to call the Salt Lake City Police Department's "Tips For Cash" hotline at 801-799-INFO. A cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect in this incident. Callers may remain anonymous.
Commentary: This is what we get when we throw open our doors to the "wretched refuse" of other shores - we get "wretched" results. However, this thug didn't target his victim because of her race; he had an primeval urge and sought out the most convenient victim, another member of his race. However, many of them do target whites because of their race; a local Utah Latino blog, Brown Views, uses anti-white racist terminology to describe the Minutemen, a multi-racial organization dedicated towards immigration reform. Personally, I don't care if they promote race-consciousness amongst the Hispanic community (and, of course, we assert the same right to promote constructive race-consciousness within the white community), but they should quit pretending not to be racist.
But we're told diversity is "good" for us by a corporate establishment that wants the cheapest, most compliant labor possible, as well as social engineers who look upon America as an experimental lab to field-test every crackpot demographic theory imaginable, regardless of the impact upon society. And we're not being asked merely to "tolerate" this diversity, but psychologically browbeaten into "celebrating" it.
But gee whiz, what's a few extra robberies and murders each month if we can get a few more ethnic restaurants. Just think - thanks to diversity and mass immigration, you don't have to fly all the way to Vietnam to eat 1,000 year old eggs anymore; you can do that right in your own hometown. LOL!
